2019年2月27日的研究生讨论班 – 总结

2019年2月27日星期三,中法中心举办了一个针对在北京的研究生的讨论班。中法中心迎接了新来的研究生并介绍了我们中心的宗旨与活动。

该活动时,我们很高兴地听到博安安 (Andreea Ioana BUDEANU) 博士生的讲座。博安安在北京大学国际关系学院读博三。她的导师是余曦 (Jean-François HUCHET),中国经济专家与法国国立东方语言文化学院的院长。她通过学习建于2012年的“16+1合作”在研究中国与中东欧国家的关系。安安介绍了她的研究过程与进步。

由于她的政治学、国际关系与中国学的教育背景及她在罗马尼亚、法国与中国都读过书,她为研究这个话题而融合本人的不同经验、知识与她所受到的影响。她报告之后跟参与者问答,导致了很有意思的辩论涉及“16+1合作”的社会、经济与政治问题。

该研究生讨论班的主讲人,中法中心的主任傳闌思讨论了在中国做研究的一些困难与挑战。由于18年在中国生活的经验与她具有丰富的实地工作经验,傳闌思使用了自己的经验来说明实地会出现的障碍并给了一些面对困难、解决问题的方法和花头。

下一届研究生讨论班4月下旬。有感兴趣的话,请跟我们联系上contact@beijing-cfc.org,具体写下来你的名字,电子邮箱,中国/法国的学校,研究方向,导师(如有)与任何问题。

我们希望下次研究生讨论班大家很热情地来参加!

Young Researchers Seminar : New Developments in the Chinese social sector – 2 June 2017

The Tsinghua University Sino-French Research Centre is pleased to invite you to a seminar on new developments in the Chinese social sector.

Speakers:

Virginie Arantes (Université Libre de Belgique),

Olivier Ruelle ((Hong Kong Polytechnic University)

Discussants:

Jia Xijin, Associate Professor at the School of Public Policy and Management of Tsinghua University, Vice Dean of the Institute of Philanthropy of Tsinghua University

Chloé Froissart, Director of the Tsinghua Sino-French Research Center

Virginie Arantes: “The emergence of a ‘Green’ third sector in China: Cross-sectional study of grassroots NGOs

Social enterprises are a relatively new concept in China; however, their emergence already seems « unstoppable » in Shanghai. Indeed, a growing number of different actors have been actively emerging and promoting a new entrepreneurial approach in order to address social issues and create positive community changes. After more than two decades of what have been called an « association revolution » with the exponential rise of NGOs in China, a time of social enterprises development seem to have come. Drawing on fieldwork conducted in Shanghai, this article suggests that the diversification of the third sector with the emergence of social enterprises can be seen as a strategic response of society in order to overcome the restrictive and controlled environment imposed to NGOs in China.

Virginie Arantes

Virginie Arantes is a doctoral candidate and FNRS research fellow in the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. Her actual research focus on grassroots environmental NGOs and social enterprises in Shanghai.

Olivier Ruelle : “Public Interest Practitioners in China :How doing gongyi constitutes a sense making process?”

In 2011, public figures such as academics and investigative journalists caught much public attention by launching a series of actions through social media in China. Some of these actions revolved around the abduction and trafficking of children, miners befallen by pneumoconiosis, or malnutrition of schooled children in poor regions. Described as ‘Internet philanthropy,’ ‘social public interest actions,’ or ‘popular public welfare’, these gongyi or public interest actions were initiated by individuals not generally associated with charity or philanthropy. They reached out to the public in a direct and immediate way through social media, enabling volunteers to participate online and offline. And they raised social issues rarely covered by traditional media. The emergence of public interest (PI) initiatives and their use of Social Network Services are the signs of a radical transformation of China’s charity sector, an evolution from top-down cishan to a more accessible gongyi. This evolution is marked by a steady development in the number of non-profit organizations, with almost 330,000 private non-commercial enterprises (minban fei qiye danwei) registered through the Ministry of Civil Affairs in April 2016. The objectives of this research are, first, to understand the motivations of long-term staff and volunteers involved in this growing sector in China, a subject that has hardly been investigated in the existing literature. Second, how their involvement constitutes an individual sense making process that helps them construct meaning regarding their social contribution and their relations with other social actors. And, third, to start considering the wider implications of this individual sense making process for the future of the PI sector.

Olivier Ruelle

After about twenty years of living and working in China, Olivier Ruelle has been a PhD candidate at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s Department of Applied Social Sciences (APSS) since 2014. His research interests lie in the motivations of public interest (gongyi) practitioners and how they cooperate with other social actors to solve social problems.

Presentation of Camille Boullenois : « 中国农村地区的社会阶层流动 : 以台前县的企业家为例 », 9 March 2017

The Tsinghua University Sino-French Research Centre and the Sociology Departement of Tsinghua University are pleased to invite you to a presentation of Camille Boullenois, with Professor Liu Jingming (Professor of sociology at Tsinghua University):

CamilleBoullenois

Camille Boullenois

Camille Boullenois is a PhD student in the Department of Political and Social Change, College of Asia and the Pacific, ANU. Her research expertise relates to social relations and social change in contemporary China, especially pertaining to rural China, agricultural policy, entrepreneurship, social mobility, rural-urban migration. She also works as an analyst at China Policy, and contributes regularly to China Analysis and Oxford Analytica, writing on Chinese society and politics.

“Social mobility in rural China: a study of entrepreneurs in Taiqian County”

« 中国农村地区的社会阶层流动 : 以台前县的企业家为例 »

Camille Boullenois will present her current doctoral research on social mobility in rural China after 1978. The liberalisation reforms after 1978 have led to increased, though limited, social mobility. Preliminary findings suggest a continuation of previous communist elites, who took advantage of their position to take over collective enterprises, and adapted their strategies to assert and maintain their power in the local area. But a new group of private entrepreneurs also joined the ranks of this enduring elite, starting business from scratch, often after working several years in cities. These new entrepreneurs were mainly drawn from former wealthy families that undertook business activities before the Maoist revolution and re-emerged after 1978. The bottom line of this research project is to understand the power play between a new and an old (though very adaptative) elite, and how their dominance is constructed locally. These questions will be examined through the lens of power relations, by analysing day-to-day social and cultural practices, and by studying network resource, factional affiliation, kinship, and cultural capital to understand the changes in the power base of rural elites.

“中国企业能否通过奖金制度的改革实现更有社会经济效益的管理?”

“中国企业能否通过奖金制度的改革实现更有社会经济效益的管理?”

依靠泰勒模式所组织的大规模制造型生产企业,在中国过去三十年的经济腾飞中帮助超过四亿极度贫困的中国人改善了生活水平。时至今日,持续增长生产成本及质量优化需求促进了被视为后泰勒主义管理思想的精益生产在中国制造型企业的广泛实践。然而,在这一过程中,介于受政策影响的用工成本的增长和基于泰勒主义分工思想所导致的工作价值的贬值之间的矛盾却未曾得到企业管理者的重视。我们在对天津的三家制造型企业(航空器制造,汽车制造及自动化仪表制造)隐性成本的调研中发现:由工具主义理性主导的精益生产实践更容易在企业生产活动过程中造成独特的不良运作以及负面的社会影响。我们认为,将现行的与直接生产任务相关联的集体奖金制度,变更为个体在完成具体组织目标过程中的贡献和其相应的改革红利的个人化绑定,将更可能实现对组织成员工作价值的肯定和提高,进而提升企业社会经济成绩。

Presentation of Nathalie Mingboupha, “Hyphenated-Chinese in China:Western born second generation overseas Chinese’s ethnic ‘return’ migration to China”, December 15 2015

The Tsinghua University Sino-French Research Centre is pleased to invite you to the following presentation (in English) :

YMBNathalie Mingboupha

PhD candidate at at the School of East Asian Studies, University of Sheffield, and recipient of the CEFC short-term mobility grant for doctoral research

“Hyphenated-Chinese in China:Western born second generation overseas Chinese’s ethnic ‘return’ migration to China”

This research project explores the ethnic “return” migration of second generation overseas Chinese born in Western countries to their ancestral homeland, China. With the purpose of understanding how their​ ​”​homecoming”​ ​experiences and success or failure to integrate socially and culturally into the ancestral homeland’ society leads to the re-evaluation of their identity, Nathalie Mingboupha hypothesizes that this highly-skilled migrant group’s definitions of self and home evolve along with their transition from being a racial minority in their birth country to a cultural minority in their ethnic homeland. Resting upon qualitative methods combining the use of primary and secondary sources (mostly semi-structured in-depth interviews and document analyses), the ​aim of this research is to uncover this migrant group’s multifaceted identities through their migration stories.

刘计峰, “逝去的荣耀:城市发展、地方政治与厦门鼓浪屿的基督教”, 2015年11月23日

The Tsinghua University Sino-French Research Centre is pleased to invite you to the following presentation (in Chinese) :

YMBLiu Jifeng

PhD candidate in sociology at Leiden University Centre for the Study of Religion and recipient of the CEFC short-term mobility grant for doctoral research

“The Passing of Glory: Urban Development, Local Politics, and Christianity on Gulangyu Island, Xiamen”
“逝去的荣耀:城市发展、地方政治与厦门鼓浪屿的基督教”

After the defeat of Qing government in the First Opium War, Xiamen was forcibly opened to the outside world as a trading port. At the same time, Christianity entered. As increasingly more westerners came, Gulangyu was thrust into a Western-led modernization process, in which Christianity played a major role in reshaping the sociocultural context of the island. Trinity Church, built in 1934, was a witness to the prosperity of Christianity on this island. Despite the harsh repression during Mao’s political campaigns, Trinity Church survived and revived after its reopening in the late 1970s. However, the church was doomed to decline because of the state-led commercialization driven by the development of tourism on the island. As Gulangyu experienced rapid social, cultural, and demographic changes, Christianity on the island in general and Trinity Church in particular were inevitably affected. This research, based on ethnography of Trinity Church, reveals the fate of Christianity on the changing island.
